it was amazing

I read this book in one sitting and didn’t want it to end! I was immediately enamored by the setting: a private boarding school where the debate team serves as a way for the main character, scholarship recipient Tanner McKay, to prove he belongs among the wealthy elite. Heading this circle is the Duke, a school legend. The intrigue behind the Duke and the increasingly tough decisions Tanner’s forced to make as he’s drawn into the Duke’s orbit make this book a page-turner. But this is a fast-paced read with depth: I loved the endearing relationship between Tanner and his brother, and I felt like I was living each of Tanner’s choices (which also left me wondering, long after the last page, if I would have made them myself or chosen another path). A compelling and original retelling of The Great Gatsby, with plenty of emotional punch, THE DUKE OF BANNERMAN PREP isn’t to be missed. Five stars!
